Wimbledon was stripped of its World Ranking points due to the ban on Russian and Belarusian tennis players.
It was a violation of the principle that players should be judged on merit, according to World Tennis Authorities.
The ATP, which is responsible for the men’s game, stated that it had acted with regret and reluctance but that discrimination by individual tournaments was simply not possible.
The WTA, the women’s tennis governing body, also stated that it would be removing points from the event.
It stated that players should not be prohibited from competing because of their nationalities, or the decisions of their governments.
Wimbledon declared the ban in April due to the invasion by Ukraine.
The LTA, which manages the game in Britain banned Russian and Belarusian players for all of its competitions.
The affected players include Daniil Medvedev, the US Open men’s champion and Aryna Sabalenka, a highly-ranked women’s player.
Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal are just a few of the who have criticized the ban .
Wimbledon organizer the All England Club stated that it was deeply disappointed at the “disproportionate” decision by WTA and ATP.
It stated that although it was deeply sorry for the impact on players, the ban was sound and it was the only viable decision to keep Wimbledon as a world-famous sporting event and British institution.
According to the club, a proposal to allow players compete if they sign a declaration condemning war “would be subject to significant scrutiny and could pose a risk to their reputation.”
It stated that it would not accept Wimbledon success or participation being used for propaganda purposes by the Russian regime.
“We are still considering all options and are not committing to any at this time. It also stated that it was in discussions with Grand Slam colleagues.
As long as the Russian and Belarusian athletes continue to play in ATP, WTA, and ITF competitions, they are allowed to do so with a neutral flag and without any anthem.
WTA and ATP both reiterated their support for Ukraine’s people and condemned the Russian invasion.
Wimbledon starts on 27 June and ends on 10 July.
Numerous other sports have cancelled events in Russia and many athletes from Russia have been expelled from competition.
